Notes:
Two-time All-ACC selection and a Jim Thorpe Award semifinalist...Set a Miami record for defensive backs with 293 total tackles, 20 of those coming behind the line of scrimmage...Deflected 25 passes in his career and recorded seven interceptions...Played both safety and corner at Miami...Is a tremendous natural athlete who has room for added bulk on his frame...Can run with any receiver...Can change directions effortlessly and hits like a linebacker...Knows how to attack the ball when it is in the air...Closes in a hurry...Is best at the free safety position, as he is able to take full advantage of his instincts...Central figure in the Miami/FIU brawl this past season and also had some off-the-field issues...Hard to find many negatives about Meriweather's game, but some poor decision making outside of football, could see this first-round talent slip a bit on draft day.
